Where are the Steels and Deals of Maui?

I mean where would you eat? Where are the greatest Happy hours, Buffets and Values and coupons? Also food trucks. Most of all late night drinking. Yahoo!!

Now I've use the Enertainment Book and PrimeCard plus the local paper in years past. while staying at

Marriott Ocean Club timeshare in Lahaina - Maui, Hawaii 96761

Most of all please rate the overal value, of any place near that side of the inland.

  1. Here are some cheap places, some are fast foodish, but good and great for take out.

    Honokowai Okazuya Deli: (Honokawai Beach) great local and deli food.
    Mama's Ribs & Rotisserie: Napili Plaza.
    Maui Tacos: Napili Plaza.
    Ba-Le Vietnamese Sandwiches: Lahaina Cannery Mall
    Athens Greek: Lahaina Cannery Mall.
    Sunrise Cafe (Lahaina)
    Star Noodle (Lahaina)
    Nagasako Okazuya (Lahaina)

    And more restauranty, but still reasonable:

    Aloha Mixed Plate: (Lahaina) local food that is reasonable, nice location on the beach, good portions.
    The Gazebo: (Outrigger Napili Shores), great breakfasts, get there early or you wait.
    Cheeseburger Lahaina: (Lahaina) Eat upstairs, not the downstairs dining area.
    CJ Diner: (Kaanapali) In the Ka'anapali Golf Shops.

    Higher end places like the TS Restaurants (Kimo's. Leilani's, Duke's & Hula Grill) all have good happy hours and some have early bird specials too.

    Merriman's (Kapalua) has a good happy hour as Betty's Beach Cafe (Lahaina) and Lahaina Pizza Co. (Lahaina and formerly BJ's).

      Merriman's happy hour is good but if you want mixed drinks you have to order them yourselves at the bar and carry them down if you want to sit outside on the deck area otherwise you can sit at the bar, have food and the drink specials. On the deck they serve the wine/beer specials as well as the food.

    2. Duke's and Hula Grill have an excellent happy hour in Ka'anapali..
      Sansei for happy hour sushi at Kapalua..
      Back in the days, we would close down Lahaina at some of those great bars..
      Jawz food truck at Makena beach and Maui tacos in Kihei.
      Gazebo in Napili for breakfast or Plantation house at Kapalua for best ahi benedict.

        Looked into Sansei and their happy hours dont start until after 9pm some sites said 10pm so wanted to add this in case you dont like to eat out this late.

          Imho, Sansei is only worth it if you get the 25-50% off ..
